MOORHEAD — Concordia College is scheduled to host their second community conversation at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 25, at the Offutt School of Business.

The event, titled “Getting a Life: Finding Meaning Beyond Employment”, is a hybrid in-person and virtual discussion featuring Jonathan Malesiac. Malesiac is “a leading American thinker on work” and author of “The End of Burnout: Why Work Drains Us and How to Build Better Lives”, a news release from Concordia College stated.

The discussion will focus on the rising rates of employee turnover in the American workplace. According to the news release, employees are quitting their jobs even without new ones in hand more often because they feel undervalued and do not find belonging.
